You have ideas. You have passion. You have determination. Let us fund you


We look out for individuals who are committed to their work, willing to put up the long hours, determined to succeed have a clear goal for themselves.

We know that getting started is hard. Let us help you

Our focus is connecting entrepreneurs with ideas to investors who are willing to invest in individual entrepreneurs and their ideas.

How to speak to investors and get funded

Asking someone to give you money sounds impossible. However, you just need to excite them with your vision. Here’s how.


Old folks know a ton. Leverage on their contacts for the win.

Believe it or not, older folks have decades of experience and knowledge. How can the young guns harvest that and learn something new?
